In case you missed it:
We need your help to contact our elected officials today and have them inquire with the NYS Dept. of Budget where is the $44 million in federal Temporary Assistance for Needy Families set aside funding to create summer jobs for nearly 19,000 low income young adults, at a time of record unemployment.
The North Country is ready to engage young adults in real work experience, right now! This program has operated for decades, and if it doesn't run this summer New York is making the choice to leave young adults behind as part of the recovery.
